Kelly Finnigan/ ‘The Tales People Tell’/ Colemine Records
The lead singer of indie-soul auteurs Monophonics steps out on his own with this solo debut. Finnigan wrote and produced each track and plays 10 instruments throughout, while enlisting the help of friends and legends like drummer James Gadson (Bill Withers, Marvin Gaye, Beck), members of Monophonics, and Kelly’s own father, prominent sideman/keyboardist Mike Finnigan (Jimi Hendrix, Joe Cocker, Etta James). This sense of community underscores the music, a family affair both gritty and tender.
